40 PERCENT?????

I am still baffled that there are so many people
who think that invading Iraq was a good
move. According to this website, about
40% of Americans think so:

Can someone enlighten me? Are they
watching or reading something I am not?
Are they not watching or reading anything?
What am I missing?

"A good move" is different from "the right thing," which is what 39% of the respondents thought military action against Iraq was. That may seem like semantic quibbling, but sometimes you do the right thing even if it's a bad move.

Me, I would have to say Not The Right Thing, for the sole reason that the question begins with the caveat "From what you now know". And I'm not talking about the WMDs - I'm talking about post-war planning. If I knew then that we had no plan, we were going to let the looters run free, we were going to disband the military, we were going to stand passively by and let the militias take over - since I now know that we had no plans to prevent Iraq from slipping into a chaos arguably worse than Saddam's tyranny, I do not think the US did the right thing in taking military action.

But who cares about polls anyway?

German,

You don't care about polls, and I don't care about polls, but a whole bunch of people read them as if they are Gospel. Going to war was either right or wrong, quite irrespective of whether or not people think it was right or wrong.

He certainly has changed his position on nation building, and no one is really holding his feet to that particular fire.

Baby soon.
